29 year old Nilotpal Das from Guwahati, along with his 30 year old friend Abhijeet Nath left for a day out at a picnic spot in the Karbi Anglong district in the state of Assam, India.
While there, they were falsely accused by someone of being child abductors. A mob quickly formed and lynched both men.
Assam chief minister Sarbanada Sonowal has ordered a high-level probe into their lynching, and said “It is condemnable that people are being killed after being influenced by rumours and superstition.”
According to Indian Express, 23 people have been arrested in connection with the lynching, and one for spreading rumors regarding “child kidnappers” on Facebook.
